Just Call Him Sorrowful

Mid March 2010

Time to carve: 1.5 hours
Finishing: 1.5 hour

I wasn't too sure about this one... it seemed too easy. Well I started to make this slide out of pine but it didn't work out so well because the wood kept giving me raw edges in certain spots. The second one was carved out of bass wood and it was a beautiful day. I don't mean just because the project came together, but a really nice day outside with temps in the 70's. After a long cold winter, a day like this one shouldn't be wasted. No...not a sick day or impromptu vacation day, just a lunch hour sitting in the sun and carving. Anyway, the head was carved and the ears were glued on after painting with craft paints. A couple of coats of poly finished it off.
